Foster Youth

  • The Hamilton School District is dedicated to providing a high quality education to all students in their school of origin or support them in accessing an uninterrupted education in their school of residence. The district follows the principles set forth in AB 490: Everyone shares the duty to promote the educational progress of children in out of home placements. Educators, school personnel, social workers, probation officers, caretakers, advocates, and juvenile court officers must work together to serve the educational needs of children in foster care. Foster youth must have access to the same academic resources, services, and extracurricular and enrichment activities available to all students. All educational decisions must be in their best interests.
